Hi Paolo,

\score {
  \repeat unfold 12 { c'4 }
  \layout {
    \context {
      \override TimeSignature.extra-spacing-width = #'(0 . 10)
      \override = #'(fixed-space . 12)
      \override = #'(semi-fixed-space . 12.5)

You’d have to add an equivalent tweak for any prefatory material (Clef, 
KeySignature, etc.).

1. What music do you have that doesn’t include a grob of any sort in the first 
moment of the measure?

2. How about

    { \once \hide Rest \tweak Rest.extra-spacing-width #'(-10 . 0) r4 c'4 4 4 }

Hope that helps!
